This. It's hard for someone to miss his kids growing up. Yzerman named an injured player over him when MSL has been going all out every night.

MSL signed below market value to stay in TB, and be away from his family. I can understand why he would make a request specifically to NYR.

He gets to drive to practice from home, and play 45 min away from them. Those early years in a kid's life aren't something you can really ever get back.

Hockey players know what they sign up for with all the road games. But for MSL it was on another level.
